MKM Museum Küppersmühle, Extension – Planning permission granted by the city of Duisburg
DUISBURG, September 2016 – The work on the new extension of the MKM can start. Initial preparations of the building site are already underway, with actual construction work scheduled to begin in September. The laying of the foundation stone, together with a detailed presentation of the project, is planned for spring 2017. The inauguration is scheduled for 2019.
“To any passer-by, the new extension will appear to have always stood there. Both in terms of its scale and material. The extension fits into the chain of the impressive historical brick edifices flanking the harbour basin, and thus complements the existing museum and harbour basin complex.” Herzog & de Meuron
